there are federal statutes that would provide surveillance in the united states. the privacy laws that exist are very targeted. the approach the united states has taken to privacy do not encompass the type of surveillance the drones are able to conduct. advocating forre additional legislation. the primary difference will be, and i think this has been brought up, that drones are going to be able to conduct much more surveillance. they are cheaper to fly, cheaper to buy and maintain. therefore there able to conduct an incredible amount more surveillance and suggest individuals to the surveillance. they are built and designed to carry some of the most surveillance technology on the market today. this further puts individuals at risk. >> i assume your analysis has to do with the stealth factor, the size and the way many of them are operated they do not make as much noise, harder to see, and harder to hear, and can move in and out in that -- like a seat thief infe -- like a the night. in the testimony you mentioned several concerns you have about drones. even with current advancements, and the co
weapons? >> i think it may help. but law enforcement's position from day one has been to protect the families. and they have suffered enough. and to release some pictures like that may make them suffer more. and we have to talk about the families collectively. we just can't think of one, maybe, and say it's okay and we have 19 or 20 or 25 others that don't feel it's okay. i don't think that's going to work either. so i don't think we're ever going to get the full range of acceptance to releasing pictures. but i think everybody can understand, as you aptly put, the slaughter that an ar-15 can do a 6-year-old or a 7-year-old. we don't need pictures to know that. i think in our own minds, we can certainly imagine it. and that should be our driving force. >> chief fuchs, you had, i think, two children who attended sandy hook school. they no longer attend the school. they attend another newtown school, just from age point of view. for you it must have been a very, very harrowing experience again, simply because this could have been your children. >> it was. and to be honest, when i wa
it but they choose to move it a block and a half up. and dpw's application of the laws is arbitrary and mr. hwang said that it is 300 feet away and how could that be, they are doing something weird. >> thank you, next speaker please. >> hi, my name is keith, and i am not affiliated with any business in the neighborhood. impart of the neighborhood in the sense that i walk and drive those blocks frequently to get from the financial district to my facility. i know that you don't make policy decisions but this is public comment but i will note that the last thing that this block needs is another coffee per vaier particularly a truck that blocks the sidewalk, and it can con gest the traffic further. i am happy to know that there are things that you could deny this application and i hope that you do, you know, pay attention to what you are going to do and hopefully at the end of the day this application will not be allowed to exist, thank you very much. >> next speaker please? >> hi, i'm gary, i'm the applicant. i have gotten no rest in 15 calls from the department of public health over the last week.
at dearborn law-enforcement association. thank you for inviting me to speak to you about the use of unmanned aircraft a small colorado community where he lives. the mesa county sheriff's office is a middle sized of a 200 people at the patrol chamber 65 deputies. this are approximately 175,000 citizens to the infiniti 3300 square-mile county. we see a wide range for petty offenses to major crime including drug trafficking and homicide. in four years with lumbar operational hours than anyone else in the country with 185 and over 40 missions. the two small battery operated aircraft systems that's a lot considering this one on the table here is a backpack size helicopter that can fly for 15 minutes and weighs two pounds. our smaller plane can fly for an hour and weighs just about eight pounds. both systems are used to carry canvas which are commercially available. in fact coming committee same camera at wal-mart. have a tissue at the brief examples of how we use this equipment. my first example occurred last may when an historic church cup higher. recruited from a camel which allowed us to show
communities? and i think perhaps the law enforcement folks feel the cultures in the communities and see that come out in the adults. i would like to hear about how do you affect a culture and even in san francisco we have many cultures affecting what is valued, what is criticized. >> you know i think that richard touched upon this. it's a relationship of power and it's clearly going to differ from community to community; right. when i was telling you i was picked because because i didn't speak english or at all initially there were only about 5% of us that were hispanic in the school and wouldn't be the case if 95% are hispanic and english speaking as a second language, but i think the way that we can deal with the issue is we ought to first of all start with the notion of respect for others, and respect for others can work across the line. it doesn't necessarily mean -- it doesn'tly has to deal with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is
with that giant gavel to pass this law she said we'd have to find the details once it was approved. three years later we found out. we're getting slammed. >> welcome everybody. i'm cavuto? how you neil because when nance sis i blowing out the candles today -- >> below wellness, prevention, no denial for preexisting conditions no lifetime limits on care. >> neil: what will be a pretty tough law. after you blow out the candles you're the one who is going to get burned, especially when you go into the not so pretty little surprises emerging. she has had this from the very beginning. the only person in the country who has read and it understands it. >> i read so it you don't have to neil. >> actually i did read it, but you actually understood it. but here's what you were telling me then and what we were fearing there the goodies were loaded up front. coverage for preexisting conditions, getting your kids on the policy longer, free. >> noaa. >> neil: and the glad stuff -- >> after the 2012 election. now the president said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. you won't be able to find y
have no budget from the president, in violation of the law. he gets his ncaa bracket in on time but still no budget. this is the fourth time in five years. he set a new record this year, two months with no plan, while we had trillion-dollar deficits and a debt crisis on the horizon. his party leaders, unfortunately, failing offering a serious account of our challenge. no serious plan to grow our economy or create jobs. no plan to ever balance the budget. take more. trillions of dollars more to spend more in washington. that's what got us in this mess in the first place. so what can be done? the good news is that we now have a vehicle for regular order. the democrats derailed the budget process each of the last few years and stopped governing when they stopped budgeting. at least we now have a budget process that's moving. we brought them back in the game this spring. that's a good thing. so what's going to happen in the weeks ahead? well, we will make the case for our priorities. whether the gentleman from maryland wants to acknowledge it or not, we have divided government. the
proper and this project will be built in accordance with the law that will be scrutinized as it has been for six years now. it will meet the stand standards of the code and mr. santos is here to talk about issues but you have three minutes and come up. >> in terms of the engineering issues but this will be a better, safer situation once this project is built. >> commissioners, santos, (inaudible) for the project. stability of the site, we are proposing absolutely the best thing that can happen to this hill. why? one, we are going to take all of the water and create a permanent new watering system, so all of the drainage issues that are occurring on the adjacent properties have been solved by the fact that we are taking that excavation. two, we will have retaining walls that are properly designed and properly reinforced and more importantly they will be peer reviewed and we will have another pair of eyes and structural engineers and source engineer and geologists this is the best possible thing that could happen to the hill and stabilized and let's talk about the demolition. mr. will
cases against that school discipline, but holly has come up with a really wonderful solution within law enforcement that we would love you to talk about and it's preventive and solution. >> thank you. it's not going to be a shock to you that i don't have a sizzle reel but i did manage to get a few powerpoint slides in so it's a good thing if i can get my next one. can you advance it for me please? so it is a safety course that i created with yahoo. we partnered together. i started asking questions the first day so my boots are on the ground and i'm in the schools and i love doing what i do, and i believe wholeheartedly and i believe it was the soft power -- yes, i love it. i think it's effective in so many ways, so i had luckily teamed up with the right people at yahoo who were really amazing and just the foresight they saw, and believed in the concept that law enforcement needs to be a piece of this puzzle and have some solutions. we have a unique part in the schools and with kids and this did get certified for the peace officer standards and we get credit for that being police
partnership in south florida with local law enforcement who had gone into schools talking about bullying, including cyber bullying and giving people concrete examples of things of situations they saw, it was remarkable. and that is why we will continue to do that work. so i hope today as we move forward you will understand that we are in this together with you at the department of justice. this is an all hands on deck enterprise. there is so much to do. i hope at the end of this day we will indeed all follow the lead of that student, walk out and say what are one or two things i'm going to do differently and better? how are we going to improve this situation? i hope if you take one and only one thing from melinda and my and ruslyn's remarks today, if you have an idea, please bring them to us. we want to learn from you. we are in this together and i want to say thank you because the most important thing we have is a recognition that you understand that this is indeed a national issue for us to deal with. i'm looking forward to the rest of the day, i appreciate your presence and i
governor andrew cuomo wants to ease restriction option his just passed gun control law. the measure been as the sale of gun magazining holding less than seven bullets. he says it's unworkable since there is no seven rounds of magazine. so he wants a sale of clips holding up to ten rounds but forbid them from loading more than seven bullets in to them. meanwhile, also in new york, vice president biden today pledged to keep fighting for an assault weapons ban, even though fellow democrat harry reid is moving a bill forward without him. president obama's healthcare reform law turns three years old saturday. tonight, chief national correspondent jim angle tells us what we have seen so far. >> though obamacare opportunity fully take effect until january, parts of it are already in place, supporters, of course, point to the benefits. >> already more than 3 million young americans gain coverage through their parent's plan. preventive coverage free for tens of million of americans. >> children now have coverage. february they have a preexisting condition, children can stay on the parents' plan u
. that is under current law, the law the president supports. he changed to make that, so it is financially feasible. our program would move us in the direction of premium support, which is what members of congress have. it will allow for a certain amount of money subsidy, a benefit check, if you will, for seniors to be able to utilize that to purchase what they want for themselves so they are able to have an insurance program that is much more responsive to them. as a physician, medicare patients are having a whale of a time finding doctors to take medicare. if you are a new medicare patients and your doctor prior to the agencies the five does not take medicare patients, you have a very difficult time finding a new dr. who will take a new medicare patient. one out of every three doctors in this country have limited the number of patients they are seeing. see no of every eight medicare patients at all. the program is flawed and needs to be reformed. we need to strengthen medicare. our guest,rice is republican of georgia. we are talking about budgetary matters. the numbers are on the screen.
counsels that i talked about in liberated areas, to develop their police forces because law and order as you heard in turkey, is a big issue. and so we need working with partners, i think the germans are going to help us with this. >> excuse me, ambassador, i only have a minute left. could you just answer my question? >> on the question about assad, there's two possibilities. we see him pulling forces in. will he hold out in damascus at the end? maybe. but a lot of observers think he might instead retreat to the heartland of the base of his support which would be up along the coast in northwest syria. we're not quite sure which he would do. >> let me reclaim my time. i'm sorry, mr. ambassador. the opposition, when mr. weber was asking you questions. the leading opposition movement, is that an al qaeda affiliate? that an al qaeda affiliate? >> no, absolutely is not. the al qaeda affiliate is a small part of the opposition. it is a small minority. the voice is getting louder. >> is this hassan hito the new prime minister, what is his affiliation with the muslim brotherhood? we heard rep
of what happened nobody has any idea what motivated this murder. law enforcement said they're not jumping to conclusions whether his job or his job as second in command of state prisons in missouri before he came to colorado, whether any of those job titles had anything to do with his murder last night. they said they're keeping an open mind as to the possibility that what he does for a living had nothing to do with why he was killed. but in response to the killing, at what is already a heightened time of political tension in the state, colorado officials have responded by increasing security for other top government officials in the state. they have also increased security at the governor's mansion. this is happening in colorado at an already heightened time. the colorado legislature has been debating and passing gun reform legislation and that debate has been unusually contentious. they have pledged on the floor of the senate that they will disobey them. they will disobey the state's new laws. democratic lawmakers have received threats for their support of gun reform. criminal charges h
in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other hand, it would really upset their base on gay marriage, even as 58% of americans accept gay marriage, the base of the republican party is in this very different place. so they don't know how to make that movement without upsetting their base, which is why you saw after that autopsy, which did make some comments about young people needing to see that the republican party was more open on issues of equality for the lgbt commu
mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west and in the south that gun control has always been a big libertarian issue, that we have this very
. at legalzoom.com we put the law on your side. >> the >> a prank staged for youtube is getting attention today because the prankster got thrown in jail. watch in. a teenager doing a flip over the heads of two police officers on a park bench. the cops apparently didn't think it was funny once they discovered that he filmed it. >> i just filmed that? put your hands behind your back. >> megyn: oh, really? the 18-year-old was handcuffed and spent the night in jail and the video nearly 3 million hits on youtube. sometimes you have no idea how a simple small act of kindness can lead to bigger things. and this may be one of those times. it all began when a generous stranger and military vet reached out to this woman, the girlfriend of an american soldier now serving our country in afghanistan. listen to the story. trace gallagher has got it, trace. >> reporter: don't cry, megyn. >> megyn: you know me well. >> reporter: yeah, the soldier's name is albert d simone, stationed at fort stuart georgia and deployed to afghanistan. his girlfriend and her two kids live outside of boston and has a bumper sti
expanded, so have the data bases. federal law requires them to keep information private, many, like cvs use the information to market better to you and your family. the number one thing your drugstore won't say is? we'll make your medicine to order, but we might mess it up. it's a growing problem. we talked about it a lot on the show, when drugs in short supply, many pharmacies are taking and mixes up their compound medicines. the fda has no authority to check them first. crazy. all right. the health care law is terning three this weekend. get a cake. not everyone is in the seb ssh -- celebration mood. republicans are renewing efforts to e repeal parts of obamacare. rich edson in washington with the details. hey, rich. >> hey, good evening, tracy. we sat down with a senator, republicans say was the first to fight the president's health care plans, holding meetings to defeat them early in the obama administration, well before congress started its work to pass what became obamacare. we asked senate minority leader why republicans continue to fight the law even if republicans take over the sen
law. >> how about the states where you relle? did you release any recidivist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat defender dui. >> and request reschedule to move moan around. the nation that you didn't want to rob peter to pay paul. you could have done that. you could have found $600 so they're not released. >> sean: amen. that's what we need, more people standing town the administration and holding them accountable for the dangerous, idiotic. asinine, dumb, and that's all the time we have, let not your heart be troubled. greta van susteren is standing by to go on the record. greta, take it away. >> greta: tonight, presidential priorities, basketball or budget? >> i bet you he spends more time filling out his march madness brackets than he does writing a budget. >> i think we can do better. >> and it'd be nice to see it on march the 4th only a month late. >> and this is a tough one. >> we're still waiting on a budget from the president, though i suspect we'
to reclassifying the property as a higher tax rate that states law allows you to do that as retrofit. additionally we are looking into the loan process and these buildings maybe historic and landmarks. it would require a vote. with the mellow roos, they effectively become the voting body so they get to decide between the group when money is build out for these i am improvements that is repaid for their property taxes and gives them the mechanism without taking a loan individually. that is an interesting feature of it. if these properties change hands. the loan actually goes with it and the person who originated the loan is relieved from the debt. >> then in terms of the actual work that's being done, there was reference made before which is issued that i have been thinking about. in terms of making sure that the process for property openers owners who are complying with the law and somehow got financing and want to do the work and have to get to the planning department and planning of building inspection. what is your competence level that will our policy intent to expedited this process to make
lawsuits and the office of small businesses but those are federal laws not city laws so they don't impact how people bays bases them but they have been trying to advise small businesses around those issues. and the other issue i'm not familiar with what you're discussing but they are a locally owned company as well. and if it were formula retailer it would open as a regular cafe would but that has no bearing on in this case. what we know about the restaurants it's going to close at 10 o'clock it doesn't sound like a routy place so with that i'd move to approve it's conditions >> i totally agree i mean 8 o'clock closings is not relevant. >> if you've been working actually 5 or 6 o'clock and you've quota to get to your place of work you feel bad coming in at the 745 because you know they're going do close and a lot of restaurants are not serving dinner. you've got to have beer and wine because most people will want to have an alcoholic beverage with their dinner so it make sense to have a type 41 license. so i'm in favor >> call the question, please. >> on the motion to approve with con
of the rent control law talks about passing through half and it's kept by the property owner. that's kind of fair to me. i can be convinced otherwise, maybe but i don't think so. i like to share between the tenants and the owners. i recommend a half cost pass through. it will also save buildings -- >> thank you mr. berry. next speaker. >> hi, good afternoon. my name is maria. i work with the cause -- the organization based in san francisco mission district and through our work with our members and clients we see a lot of the buildings are in a need of a lot of repairs including seismic retrofitting. we strongly agree that earthquake safety is necessary in our city and it's great that it's such a priority. unfortunately it should not be done at the expense of tenants especially after a hundred percent pass through. the majority of these buildings are under rent control and probably long-term rent control tenants. so an increase of $80 or more would create a situation where tenants would have to leave their units . we want housing safety and security at all levels, that includes earthquake
that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-what high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. and if we could get a ban on high-capacity magazines, we could really do something to stop some of these crazy, mass shootings. >> it's all about 60 votes. to
san francisco, the lgbt elders. i'm an elder law attorney and my focus for a good 50% of my clients is on lgbt issues, financial, health, estate planning, et cetera. and what i see there is a great deal of focus on aids, on invisibility, questions on living alone or together, outliving a partner, on illness and death within our community, on housing and the lack thereof past a certain point if you're not gainfully employed or have a very huge pension from something that you did when you were gainfully employed, you might be out on the streets in san francisco. i have not done much political work here. i have been -- this is a mid-life career change for me. i was a college professor. i was [speaker not understood] at san francisco state when it was largely lesbian. i've been on the aids legal referral panel. in fact, the first work i did as an attorney was at my tree when it was still on henry street. i've worked at the [speaker not understood] nclr elder love forum. i'm past president of the national academy of elder law attorneys, local northern california chapter. i would bring ne
with a yield of 195%. an rights activists filing a lawsuit in an effort to stop the new gun-control law. considered the toughest in the country. their lawsuit filed by the national rifle association affiliate in new york argues a law violates the second amendment in this respect new yorkers because it was passed without committee hearings or public hearing. meanwhile, the independence institute has filed lawsuits challenging colorado's new anti-gun laws. those laws barely a one day old. the nra issued a statement supporting the carter lawsuit and is considering joining in a legal challenge. a house representatives said they avoided the government shut down by approving a $984 billion spending bill to fund the government through september. my next guest voted against the bill. joining us is congressman martin sussman of indiana, member of the house financial services committee, chairman of the second amendment initiative. good to have you with us. let's start with why you voted against the continuing resolution. >> great to be with you. you know, as the house and senate have been working
borrow the money and pay your check because your entitled to it as a matter of law, at a certainagers you qualify. -- at a certain age, you qualify. if your income is below a certain level, you're entitled to the money. whether uncle sam has it or not. that's based on law. that's based on legislation that congress passed that entitles people that under certain circumstances to obtain federal money. and get it as a matter of entitlement. and so when those programs are surging at 6% a year, medicaid, the poor person's insurance program, is projected to go to -- to grow 8% a year over the next decade, 117% over the next ten years, when those programs are going at that rate and the economy is growing at 2%, you have got a problem. you don't have to go to the harvard business school to know that. you really don't have to go to harvard to know that. when i talk to the american people, they understand it fully. they expect that we are really going to have to make tough choices in this country to get the country on the right path, and they are girding themselves to support such tough choices, but
with a gun violence. the governor of colorado signed into law some of the toughest gun safety measures in the country. >> the loss expand background checks to include purchases and transfers between private parties and on-line sales. it closes a loophole that had exempted fire arms sales from background checks. the laws limit the size of ammunitions to 50 rounds. >> even that progress was tainted by tragedy. they signed legislation hours after a member of his own cabinet was shot dead. he was gunned down in his own home last night. he was fatally shot after answering his door. police are still looking for the killer. been warned about loss of clemens and stressed the importance of moving forward. >> the cabinet is good as we move forward with our work. that is the kind of thing that tom would have understood and would have supported. >> republicans in that state say they will fight the new gun laws. >> it proves we have the gun control governor in colorado. the myth is busted. no one can any longer think of him as a moderate democrat. >> today marks the eighth month anniversary of the
signed into to law some of the toughest safety measures of the country. >> the new law extends background checks. it closes a loophole that had exempted firearm sales at gun shows from back ground checks. the laws also limit the size of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds and eight shotgun shells. >> but even that progress was tainted by tragedy. he signed the legislation just hours after members of his own cabinet was shutdown. he was gunned down in his own home last night. clemens was fate lay shot after answering his door. police are still looking for his killer. earlier hicken looper mourned the loss. >> i think the cabinet is good with this, we go forward with our work. it's the kind of thing that tom would have understood, i think. and, and would have supported. >> yet republicans in that state say they will fight the new gun laws. >> it proves that we have the gun control governor here in colorado. and the myth is busted that no one can any longer think of he him as a moderate democrat. >> today marks the eightth month anniversary of the shooting in aurora, colorado. the mother of on
sequestration had been signed into law. now, we didn't reach an agreement because republicans refused to include revenue, but we did agree then that deficit reduction to replace sequestration was deficit reduction. in fact, my colleague, senator toomey, put forward a plan to replace sequestration, to replace sequestration that he said would have -- quote -- "reduced our deficit by $1.2 trillion. mr. president, i find it odd that some republicans were willing to count replacing sequestration as deficit reduction when they were putting forth plans to do it, but they won't treat the senate budget the same way, especially since bipartisan groups including simpson-bowles and domenici-rivlin and the committee for responsible federal budgeting all used the same starting point that the senate budget does. like us, these groups know sequestration was not deficit reduction. it was there to trigger deficit reduction that would come from replacing it. that was the whole point. in fact, the center on budget and policy priorities noted that the senate budget uses the appropriate starting point, and i quote --
president biden teamed up with new york mayor michael bloomberg today to push for new gun control laws. biden made an emotional appeal for action. >> for all those who say we shouldn't or couldn't ban high capacity magazines, i just ask them one question, think about newtown. think about newtown. think about how many of these children or teachers may be alive today had he had to reload three times as many times as he did. think about what happened out in where gabby giffords, my good friend, was shot and wounded. think about when that young man had to try to change the clip. had he only had a ten-round clip when he changed the clip and fumbled and had it knocked out of his hand, how many more people would have been alive? and tell me how it violates anyone's constitutional right to be limited to a clip that holds ten rounds instead of 30, or in aurora a hundred? >> let's get more on the vice president's emotional appeal for new gun laws. susan candiotti with the speech, the backdrop of new york city, the mayor and involving a number of family members from the connecticut shooting. >> r
. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
locales -- local residents. they didn't follow the local letter of the law. we learned from that in the 15 years, 16 years the first source program has been around, that not once has any entity ever been penalized for violations of the first source agreement. ~ is that your understanding as well? >> correct, supervisor. my tenure doesn't go 15 year back, 15 months. at no time has liquidated damages been associated with first source. >> is there a policy within oewd that tries, attempts to avoid having liquidated damages apply? >> i wouldn't say it's a matter of policy, but the goal of city on our office on the employment side is to put san francisco residents to work, not to penalize employers. so, we will frequently use that as leverage as a means to gain employment for san francisco residents. similarly with the mandatory local hiring ordinance, we've been fortunate to date not to have levied any liquidated damages associated with that, but we have used that as a means to put san francisco residents to work successfully. >> so in the case with america's cup since we don't
laws. these are events staging companies. >> is the language that we had in the agreement, though, was that standard prevailing wage language? >> no. it referenced the prevailing wage requirement of the admin code, but not the other provisions of the admin code that pertain to how we enforce prevailing wages on a public work. and it then went on to say that enforcement would be pursuant to the labor code. the labor code provides for the state labor commissioner to enforce. the state labor commissioner is not going to enforce a prevailing wage requirement on a privately funded san francisco project. so, the language could have been better. >> how was that language crafted? how was the process, was olse part half? >> olse was not part of that. ~ so, we requested payroll documents including time cards, check stubs from all the contractors as part of our audit. neither the event authority or hartman would provide olse with a copy of the contract between the event authority and hartman, which was confidential. but both parties agreed that if it contained the prevailing wage requiremen
to hang people for it, now they just get a slap on the wrist. the proposed change to a law that california ranchers were wrangling over today. >>> today is national ag day. one state law maker using this day to introduce a new bill that would make tougher penalties for cattle rustling. ken pritchett is live in liver more. he talked to one cattle owner who has been hit hard by he's. >> reporter: not too long ago cattle rustlers took two heifers. nobody was caught. thigh are animals that are accustomed to people. it likely wasn't difficult when cattle rustlers made off with a dozen of them. >> those animals were worth well over $22,000 on that day. >> reporter: we talked with ranch owner by phone. he says the heifers were a month away from dropping calves. $22,000 doesn't even covert loss. >> worth many times that if you consider the number of calves they will produce. >> reporter: the value of cattle has gone up by as many as 50% in recent years, making theft more tempting and the consequences if caught are light. frank has a bill to change that. >> the people convicted of stealing will sta
association luncheon, andrew wiseman talks about how new technologies have changed the way law enforcement operates and investigates crimes. this is 45 minutes. >> thank you. i had narrowed down the stories about, down to one but after the introduction think i might need to say a number of anecdotes about valerie. but i will start with one because it's relevant to assuming the of general counsel after valerie caponi has had a position for ages but although she is small in stature, she has very large shoes to fill. and the best or i could come up that would give you a sense of those shoes is when valerie was the chief of the criminal division and i was a mere pop, although we did overlap i was much younger. [laughter] i had the pleasure of defending valerie when she was a witness before chief judge weinstein. and at some point after some prodding, there was a defense question that was sort of rambling speculative and hypothetical, and valerie was staring at me fiercely. i said, objections to it and the judge said what's the objection? you know, how could the witness know, it's a hypothetica

of the matrix and we are recommended oppose. what this does in the p3 law that the transportation authority in conjunction with cal transfollowed for the drive project, there is in essence two state agencies that take a look at a public, private partnership application and one is the public investment, or the private investment, i forget, what it stands for, but it is a function of the transportation secretary's office. and it was a committee that was supposed to review, proposals and make comments. secondarily, the state transportation commission is empowered to authorize a public private partnership in lease and contract. this bill, highens the ability to actually act as an initial hurtle and they have a binding, and the binding ability to reject the public, private partnership proposal before it goes to the transportation commission, we think that is not what the original framers of the particular p3 law intended and it does add an extra burden to the process and we are recommending oppose to that. ab 863 is another one that we are recommending oppose, it seems like it was a measure that

%, 30 percent responded that they should focus on passing new laws on the sales of guns and ammunition. want to repeat, only 30%. 65 percent said that they should focus of school security measures and the mental health system. by the way, i want to give credit to wayne lapierre of the nra. right now the nra is the only organization or voice that has stood up and said precisely what the solution is, and it is, by the way, in place and author of the public schools in this country. it needs to be in wondered%. senate majority leader harry reid says the assault weapons ban had fewer, as he put it -- this is his language, fewer than 40 votes. fifty-one and need for passage and 60 to end closure. fifty-three democrats in the senate and two independents to vote with the democrats. those senators obviously are bucking the democratic party and the. it is why he did the smart and pragmatic thing which is not even move this thing into the package that he will bring before the senate for a vote. by the way, these senators are the ones up for reelection next year in tossup states. there are senator
it constitutional. those are all things i disagree with. they were done within the framework of the law. in this case congress would have acted ahead of time and made it apparent we don't favor anything like this. i think it is a little bit different. melissa: are you worried, are there internal conversations what is going on in cyprus and any spillover you might see around the world? any ensuing global slowdown because just a few hours ago they said they were cutting in half the amount of money that people can take out of the atms. they have had the banks closed for days. they are not reopening them, they say, until next tuesday. now they even said you can take half as much money out of the atm as you could before, basically guaranteeing there will be a run on banks when they finally do open them. are you guys worried about a spillover? >> i am a little bit worried about that. i think confidence is a very fragile commodity. you have it until you don't. something like this, while this is happening obviously overseas. there is no indication that american regulators or american officials
of what was lawful and what wasn't lawful and what might we been able to do. formulations committee has jurisdiction. armed services has jurisdiction. that's four committees i can name off the top of my head, mr. speaker. each of them have taken some kind of look into this. here's what happens. if you take a situation like benghazi or any major incident and you break it down into four components and you assign or the jurisdiction of each committee chair would look at this and claim jurisdiction, which they rightfully can do in this congress, they would take their component of it, study it, they might write out a report, and might be complete and it might be completely accurate. they can send that out. the unclassified portion, to the american people. that report goes out. then say that select committee on intel. then, mr. speaker, the foreign affairs committee can meet and they can call their witnesses that they choose to do so, and gather that information and perhaps write a completely objective and completely truthful report, and send it out to the public. all of that that's not class
the committee that was supposed to find all the cuts failed. the sequester came into law. it's an antimilitary provision. it was put in by jack lew, a very liberal member of the president's, at that time, chief of staff for offic office of mot and budget. the president seems to be quite happy to see these cuts fall on the defense department. he seems to be happy to have this happen. why do you say that? i say, because he's done nothing to philadelphia it. -- to fix it except demand something that he has no right to demand. that is, to violate this agreement and raise taxes and spend more. and that's not going to happen. congress is not going to vote to violate the agreement they made with the american people just less than two years ago. if we give in on that, we might as well quit. and our colleagues say they want to have a balanced approach to the budget, and they're going to raise taxes, and most people hear that think that the taxes will be used to reduce the deficit. but it's not. the taxes are going to be used to fund more spending over the agreement we've had in place now for about 18 o
reviewing the permits. while it may not be a form law retail the board can consider the arguments made by the neighbors but i would suggest that is the permit that would be on appeal to the board on may 15th, which deals with the actual change of use and the establishment of an oska at that location. additionally, if somehow, they open additional stores such that they have eleven stores operating the day that this comes before the board, then they would be considered formula retail use, the board would apply the law of the day and would i believe, deny the permit because it would not have it would be a formula retail use and not have the appropriate lease authorization and the board has to apply the law of the day when you hear the permit that is before you. so, but it does not sound like that is a possibility given that they don't have enough stores in the pipeline to trigger the threshold in the next couple of months. because of that we found that it is not formula retail. and available for any questions. >> i have a quick question on the pop up stores. what do those count as? >> tho
